Karate Boy.

I enjoyed my day at the NEC on Sunday.
Came back aching though.
Went  to the Osteopath yesterday who has pummelled,
stretched and twisted me back into shape but now I feel like I'm paying twice
for the goodies I bought! Lol.
 
This is a card for our eldest Grandson
 who has his  Birthday on the 24th December.
I'm trying to get everything done ahead of time!
He is very much into Karate
so when I saw this image on Mo's Digital Pencil
by 'Mo Manning 'back in the summer knew I had to buy it.
I used SU cardstock and a craft knife
to cut the centre step base .
Pleased to say I still have all my fingers and toes!!
I coloured the image using Promarkers
and part fussy cut him out.
Background was created using a textured card stock
and 'Imagination Crafts' Wall stencil with their
embossing mat through my Grand Calibur.

The brick wall was looking a bit plain until I got my
'Dovercraft' decorative chalks out and randomly
coloured some of the bricks in.
Now it looks like a proper brick wall.
All ready to be kicked down!!
Number and wording created using Britannia dies.
Son and Grandson don't read my blog so it is safe to show now.

This looks like the PERFECT card for a karate kid! Great stepper card. Love your brick wall paper behind too! I love these but when ever I have tried it, it took two attempts and way to long to get it right. Hugs, Lesley
